Transient Execution Attacks That Leaks Arbitrary Kernel Memory (ETH Zurich)

A technical paper titled “Inception: Exposing New Attack Surfaces with Training in Transient Execution” was published by researchers at ETH Zurich. Abstract: "To protect against transient control-flow hijacks, software relies on a secure state of microarchitectural buffers that are involved in branching decisions. To achieve this secure state, hardware and software mitigations restrict or... » read more

Will Markets For ML Models Materialize?

Developers are spending increasing amounts of time and effort in creating machine-learning (ML) models for use in a wide variety of applications. While this will continue as the market matures, at some point some of these efforts might be seen as reinventing models over and over. Will developers of successful models ever have a marketplace in which they can sell those models as IP to other d... » read more
